Latest news and updates from Qube

Hello from us all at Qube! 

While our doors are not quite ready to open yet, we are still here if you need us! 
We are currently working hard to put social distancing measures in place in our building to protect visitors, volunteers and staff. Please keep an eye on our social media pages for the latest updates.

There is lots of new content on our website, including exhibitions, stories, creative ideas and videos. We also have a new online workshop coming up for Shropshire based creative practitioners who are looking to create a film about their work.

If you would like to speak to us about anything please get in touch. You can contact us on 01691 656882 or email info@qube-oca.org.uk.

Here are some of our latest opportunities and services...

Can you help us? 
We've been keeping in touch with members of our social groups over the phone while the groups are temporarily suspended. We're now in need of more telephone volunteers to help us do this. Can you spare a bit of time each week to help? Please call us on 01691 656882 or email info@qube-oca.org.uk for more information.

Online exhibitions
We've had more works sent in to our Creativity in Isolation online exhibition this month. This exhibition showcases the range of ways people have been staying creative during lockdown. You can see all the works and our three other online exhibitions by clicking here...

Staff Stories 
Qube is all about people so we thought it was time to introduce you to some of the incredible people who make Qube what it is. We've asked all the staff and trustees to tell us a bit about themselves and life under lockdown. Click here to meet the team...

Get Creative! Online resources and ideas
Looking for creative things to do during lockdown? We're putting links, ideas and templates on our website. All can be downloaded and all completely free to use.

Village Hall getting ready to open

Dear Blogger

With apologies for previous unreadable email

Message from Colin Case - re sent, see attached photographs

Busy morning at the Village Hall today. Read the water and electricity meters, flushed all loos and run all taps in accordance with anti-legionnaires disease instructions. Touch surfaces wiped with anti-bac. Door at the top of the stairs pinned back so no-one needs to touch handles. And here's some photos of our newly-installed hand sanitiser station as you go in. Nearly Covid-Secure - just one or two things on the check list! ??

Church Street is open again

Dear Blogger

Message from Lydia, Ruyton XI Towns Parish Clerk.

In case you have not already heard/seen, the road closures on Church Street have been completed slightly ahead of schedule and the road has now fully re-opened. This means that the normal bus timetable for the 576 service has resumed and the replacement shuttle service has finished.
 

Kind regards,

Lydia Bardsley
Clerk to Ruyton XI Towns Parish Council
